Panther Pride

At CDS, School Spirit is part of every student's experience, and is embedded in a beloved tradition - Panther Pride. Preschool and K-8 students are placed into teams that last for the entire school year. These multi-age groups learn to work together as they take part in several events and spirit days throughout the course of the year - earning "Panther Pride Points" for their team along the way. 

Panther Pride days offer exciting challenges that engage students in a range of interest areas, while Spirit Days are a chance to showcase each student's unique personality through themed "dress up/dress down" days.
